About Dolphin Excursions Snorkel Adventure
Our ocean safari, lead by marine biologists and naturalists, is based on the leeward coast of the island of Oahu. We are dedicated to guiding guests to a low impact interaction, in and out of the water, with wild dolphins, turtles, and pristine living coral reefs year round. We also add whale watching during the winter months. We specialize in safely leading small groups on our state of the art 34 foot rigid inflatable Scarib with our lifeguard certified crew. On our Dolphin Excursion Tour, dolphin sightings are guaranteed! If no dolphins are seen on your tour you will receive a return trip for free. Please be aware of an updated Federal Law as of November 2021 which does not allow us to get in the water with SPINNER dolphins in shallow water. Any in-water interactions with dolphins will be offshore and/or with one of our many other species of dolphins around Hawaii. Those opportunities are less frequent and always dependent on a variety of conditions including animal behavior.

The early start was well worth it! The expert crew were friendly. The boat was safe, comfortable, well equipped and fun. But obviously the purpose of the excursion was to see the wildlife close up. It was truly amazing and inspiring. Thank you!

This was a fantastic crew who made the trip so fun for the kids. The animals were so very close and the smaller size boat and fewer guests was great! They were super patient with our nervous new snorkelers. We had a wonderful trip!

Superb activity with a great snorkel/dive boat, top notch crew of 2, very knowledgeable. This day we found spinner dolphins within 5 minutes of departure, then snorkeled with different dolphins further out in deeper water, then two additional snorkel spots closer to shore with corals, fish, and sea turtles. Impressed with newness and quality of snorkel gear. Would do this same activity again on our next Trip to Oahu.
